Amplified Bible

Acts 1

Introduction

1The first [a]account I made, Theophilus, was [a continuous report] about all the things that Jesus began to do and to [b]teach until the day when He ascended to heaven, after He had by the Holy Spirit given instruction to the apostles (special messengers) whom He had chosen. To these [men] He also showed Himself alive after His suffering [in Gethsemane and on the cross], by [a series of] many infallible proofs and unquestionable demonstrations, appearing to them over a period of forty days and talking to them about the things concerning the kingdom of God. While being together and eating with them, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the Father had promised, “Of which,” He said, “you have heard Me speak. For John baptized with water, but you will be baptized and empowered and united with the Holy Spirit, not long from now.”

So when they had come together, they asked Him repeatedly, “Lord, are You at this time reestablishing the kingdom and restoring it to Israel?” He said to them, “It is not for you to know the times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority. But you will receive power and ability when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be My witnesses [to tell people about Me] both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the ends of the earth.”

The Ascension

And after He said these things, He was caught up as they looked on, and a cloud took Him up out of their sight. 10 While they were looking intently into the sky as He was going, two men in white clothing suddenly stood beside them, 11 who said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This [same] Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will return in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.”

The Upper Room

12 Then the disciples returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet (Olive Grove), which is near Jerusalem, [only] a Sabbath day’s journey (less than one mile) away. 13 When they had entered the city, they went upstairs to the upper room where they were staying [indefinitely]; that is, Peter, and John and [his brother] James, and Andrew, Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew (Nathanael) and Matthew, [c]James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon the Zealot, and Judas (Thaddaeus) the son of James. 14 All these with one mind and one purpose were continually devoting themselves to prayer, [waiting together] along with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.

15 Now on one of these days Peter stood up among the brothers and sisters (a gathering of about a hundred and twenty believers was there) and he said, 16 “Brothers and sisters, it was necessary that the Scripture be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit foretold by the lips of David [king of Israel] about Judas [Iscariot], who acted as guide to those who arrested Jesus. 17 For he (Judas) was counted among us and received his share [by divine allotment] in this ministry.” 18 (Now Judas Iscariot [d]acquired a piece of land [indirectly] with the [money paid him as a] reward for his treachery, and falling headlong, his body burst open in the middle and all his intestines poured out. 19 All the people in Jerusalem learned about this, so in their own dialect—Aramaic—they called the piece of land Hakeldama, that is, Field of Blood.) 20 “For in the book of Psalms it is written,

Let his place of residence become desolate,
And let there be no one to live in it’;

and [again],

Let another take his position as overseer.’

21 So of the men who have accompanied us during all the time that the Lord Jesus spent with us, 22 beginning with the baptism by John [at the outset of Jesus’ ministry] until the day when He was taken up from us—one of these men must become a witness with us [to testify] of His resurrection.” 23 And they put forward two men, Joseph, the one called Barsabbas (who was surnamed Justus), and Matthias. 24 They prayed and said, “You, Lord, who know all hearts [their thoughts, motives, desires], show us which one of these two You have chosen 25 to occupy this ministry and apostleship which Judas left to go to his own place [of evil].” 26 And they [e]cast lots for them, and the lot fell to Matthias; and he was added to the eleven apostles.

Notas al pie

  1. Acts 1:1 Luke is referring to his gospel.
  2. Acts 1:1 As the gospel tells us what Jesus began to do and teach, so Acts tells what He continued to do and teach by His Holy Spirit (F. F. Bruce).
  3. Acts 1:13 Also known as James the Less or James the Younger. His mother, Mary (Gr Maria), may have been either a sister or sister-in-law of Mary (Gr Mariam), the mother of Jesus.
  4. Acts 1:18 Peter means that the chief priests purchased the field in Judas’ name. He had returned to them with the money, and when they refused to accept it, he threw it into the temple sanctuary (Matt 27:3 ff). Afterwards they decided to buy the field for use as a burial ground for strangers. Peter goes on to say that Judas was disemboweled in a fall, while Matthew reports that Judas hanged himself (Matt 27:5). One explanation for the apparent discrepancy is that the rope or line that Judas was using broke, and the body fell in such a way as to be disemboweled (Matt 27:3 ff).
  5. Acts 1:26 The custom of the Jews was to write the names on stones, place them in a container and shake it until one stone fell out.

사도행전 1

예수님의 승천

1나의 친구 데오빌로에게: 내가 먼저 기록한 책에는 예수님이 자기가 선택한

사도들에게 성령으로 여러 가지를 지시하신 후에 하늘로 올리워 가시는 날까지 행하시고 가르치신 모든 일을 기록하였다.

예수님은 고난을 받아 죽으신 후 40일 동안 때때로 제자들에게 나타나 자기가 살아 있다는 확실한 증거를 많이 보여 주시며 하나님의 나라에 관해서 말씀하셨다.

예수님은 사도들과 [a]함께 모인 자리에서 이렇게 말씀하셨다. “너희는 예루살렘을 떠나지 말고 내가 전에 말한 대로 아버지께서 약속하신 선물을 기다려라.

요한은 물로 [b]세례를 주었으나 너희는 얼마 안 가서 성령으로 세례를 받을 것이다.”

그 후 [c]예수님이 다시 나타나셨을 때 제자들이 예수님께 “주님, 이스라엘 나라를 다시 세우실 때가 지금입니까?” 하고 묻자

예수님은 이렇게 대답하셨다. “때와 시기는 아버지께서 자기 권한으로 정하신 것이니 너희가 알 것이 아니다.

그러나 성령님이 너희에게 오시면 너희가 권능을 받아 예루살렘과 온 유대와 사마리아와 땅 끝까지 이르러 내 증인이 될 것이다.”

예수님이 이 말씀을 하시고 그들이 지켜 보는 데서 하늘로 올리워 가시자 구름에 가려 다시는 보이지 않았다.

10 예수님이 올라가실 때 그들이 자세히 하늘을 쳐다보고 있는데 갑자기 흰 옷 입은 두 사람이 그들 곁에 서서 말하였다.

11 “갈릴리 사람들아, 왜 서서 하늘을 쳐다보느냐? 너희 가운데서 하늘로 올리워 가신 이 예수님은 너희가 본 그대로 다시 오실 것이다.”

12 그 후 제자들은 감람산에서 예루살렘으로 돌아왔다. 그 산은 예루살렘에서 가까워 안식일에도 다닐 수 있는 거리였다.

13 그들은 성 안으로 들어가 자기들이 머물던 이층 방으로 올라갔다. 그들은 베드로, 요한, 야고보, 안드레, 빌립, 도마, 바돌로매, 마태, 알패오의 아들 야고보, 열심당원 시몬, 야고보의 아들 유다였다.

14 그들은 거기 모인 여자들과 예수님의 어머니 마리아와 예수님의 동생들과 함께 한마음으로 계속 기도에만 힘썼다.

15 그러던 어느 날 믿는 형제들이 120명쯤 모인 자리에서 베드로가 일어나 이렇게 말하였다.

16 “형제들이여, 예수님을 잡는 사람들의 앞잡이 노릇을 했던 유다에 대하여 성령께서 오래 전에 다윗의 입을 통해 예언하신 성경 말씀은 당연히 이루어져야 했습니다.

17 그는 본래 우리 가운데 한몫 끼어 우리 일의 일부분을 맡았던 사람입니다.

18 이 사람은 죄악의 값으로 밭을 사고 거기서 곤두박질하여 배가 터져서 창자가 다 흘러 나왔습니다.

19 예루살렘 사람들이 모두 이 일을 알고 그 밭을 [d]‘피밭’ 이라고 불렀습니다.

20 “시편에는 [e]‘그의 집이 폐허가 되어 그 곳에 사는 자가 없게 하소서’ 라고 기록되어 있고 또 [f]‘그의 직분을 다른 사람이 갖게 하소서’ 라고 기록되어 있습니다.

21-22 그러므로 요한이 [g]세례를 베풀 때부터 예수님이 하늘로 올리워 가시기까지 주 예수께서 우리와 함께 계시던 그 모든 기간 동안에 줄곧 우리와 같이 다니던 사람 중에 하나를 뽑아 우리와 함께 예수님의 부활을 증거하는 사람이 되게 할 필요가 있습니다.”

23 그러자 그들이 두 사람을 추천했는데 하나는 바사바 또는 유스도라고도 하는 요셉이었고 다른 하나는 맛디아였다.

24 그러고서 그들은 이렇게 기도하였다. “모든 사람의 마음을 아시는 주님, 이 두 사람 중에 주님이 택하신 사람이 누군지 보여 주셔서

25 유다 대신 봉사와 사도의 직분을 맡게 하소서. 그는 이것을 버리고 제 갈 곳으로 갔습니다.”

26 그런 다음 제비를 뽑자 맛디아가 당첨되었다. 그래서 그는 열한 사도와 함께 사도가 되었다.
